Video News: Alan McKim/Blue Sky Archives/Johnny and the Giros/Nevada Base/Thirty Pounds Of Bone

Posted on April 11, 2011


Paisley singer-songwriter Alan McKim is launching the What I Know Now EP on Saturday 16th, with a gig at Stereo (Glasgow). The debut offering is released through Telescopic Baby and will be a chance for even more folk to see why the man with the wonderfully grizzled voice was voted best acoustic act at this year’s SAMA’s.

Blue Sky Archives have released their second EP, Plural, and I’m not going to say much about it at the moment as the review will be up very soon. The band recently recorded a Radar Session, which included a fantastic version of EP track A Mighty Handful (below). For more videos and an interview head over to the Radar site.

Johnny and the Giros actually released debut single SY:NC in February, but it has only just come to my attention now, and I’m glad it did. SY:NC is a stomping indie-dance crossover, with major hooks, and is still available to purchase on Amazon

Nevada Base‘s debut single, Love In My Mind, get’s released by Flowers In The Dustbin April 18th, and will be available as a limited edition CD through Amazon, or as a download from the usual outlets. The band is playing a launch show this Thursday at Nice N Sleazy (Glasgow), and are as impressive live as they are on this fantastic release, so I’d highly recommend attending.

Thirty Pounds Of Bone was recently in Edinburgh to record Toad Session #16. The video below is of Johny Lamb playing the wonderful A Lesson In Talking, and there are more videos, MP3 downloads and the Toadcast to check out on the Song, By Toad website. You can also still purchase the most recent album, Methods, from Armellodie Records.
